Angie and family,

There are really no words we have that can ease you of your grief. Just know that Carolyn was loved and cared for by many in the Jefferson County family. May you be comforted in the days ahead with fond family memories and God's healing grace.

Please know that Glenda and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.

Love,

I can only express my sincere condolences. My memories of Carolyn are of a time of her youth when she was kind to an apprehensive young woman who was to marry her cousin soon and had come to meet the family. Walking into a welcome from Carolyn and her sisters made my first visit wonderful as was every subsequent visit. May God help sustain you through these sad times and keep your memories of her with you forever.

My heart is heavy from the loss of a life-long, dear friend. We have shared each other's ups and downs over the years. What comes to my mind the most is the laughter and fun we shared just being together. Carolyn always met me with a smile and I was very blessed to have her in my life.

I am so sorry I will be out of town for the services. Praying for this sweet family.
